First of all, thank you alllll so much for the lovely comments you've been leaving on my previous post concerning colllege. I won't say you've helped me all figure my life out (ha), but you've encouraged me a ton and made me smile with your kindness. THANK YOU. *hugs*
(If you haven't left a comment yet but want to, don't feel shy about doing so, I always love more comments on old posts. Even years old posts.)
So. I'm still kind of in rut. I have a ton of emails to reply to, and stories to edit (and a new plot bunny, muahaha), and of course, blog posts to write but my inspiration/motivation is at a zero.
Maybe negative five.
I'm sorry. *cries because I miss my blogging friends but I can't make myself write to them.*
But today, right now at 5:30 PM on this frosty, snowy evening (it's twenty degrees--Fahrenheit--and calling for another five to eight inches of snow? I think? #sendhelpwe'renotCanadians) I am determined to write a quick and fun blog post, with as little thought as possible.
Let's see if we can start this
(I stole this tag from everyone who was doing it, but it originally came from Lavender Spring.)
Does it snow where you live around Christmas? (If it doesn't, you have my sincere sympathy.) How much? Any special snowy Christmas stories?
UM yes. With more to follow, I'm told. Behold...
I love snow that sticks to all the trees. It makes me feel like we're in Narnia. :)
Do you get a real tree or a fake tree?
Quite real, thank you.
What is your favorite Christmas movie?
Definitely It's a Wonderful Life. Runners up? Eloise at Christmastime, White Christmas, A Christmas Carol, The Shop Around the Corner....
Where in the world would you like to spend Christmas the most?
Um. One place??
Okay. I'm going to assume this question is referring to real places, and thus restrict myself to the real world. I don't know exactly where, but romantic, old-fashioned village in Europe would be....*dreamy sigh*. Someplace in Austria or Hungary or Germany or wherever.
You know, someplace inexpensive like this...
You know, most days I hope to marry someone who's not very rich (money doesn't buy happiness. Louisa May Alcott taught me that.) but then there are days where traveling alllll over the world with my rich millionaire husband doesn't sound too bad.
What fictional/literary character would you most like to spend Christmas with?
I was going to -ahem- change this question and make it three characters, but then I realized. The obvious answer. I would spend Christmas with Betsy Ray. In Deep Valley. In the early 1900's.
It would be perfect. *thinks of all the fun we'd have sledding, skating, decorating the house, going to dances, making fudge, buying Christmas ornaments downtown, playing the piano....*
What is your favorite Christmas song?
While searching for this meme I stumbled upon more that made me laugh. Like this one. Especially this one.
ONE of my favorite Christmas songs is "It Came Upon a Midnight Clear."
What is your favorite Christmas book/story (besides, ya know, The Story)?
The Lion the Witch and the Wardrobe counts, right?
Which do you prefer: multi-colored lights or white lights?
Both! White lights in my room, though.
What time period/decade would you most like to spend Christmas in?
1940's. Or early 1900's-10's.
Which period drama has the best Christmas scene/episode?
Ahhh. Another hard one. Little Women IS a Christmas period drama. I adore it. Return to Cranford also has some very nice Chrismas-y scenes. Like this one.
Okay. I can't rember. That's not a Christmas scene, but it was at their Christmas party, right? Or was it a different party....I can't keep track of their parties.
Either way, it's a cute scene. So there.
Well, this post is....dreadfully long. Much longer than I anticipated. I apologize; I promise to try and learn the art of writing short blog posts.
Fare thee well, and many joyous tidings of the season, dear friends!
